An Introduction to Lucid Dreaming and Its Potential with Robert Waggoner 6 5 23Lucid dreaming is a paradoxical state in which you know you are dreaming while you are dreaming. Aware in a dream, you have the capacity to access creativity and become your fullest, most realized self. You can fly through space, discover how to project constructive beliefs outward, cast spells like Harry Potter, and resolve negative situations—all in the safety of your inner dreamscape.

For millennia, lucid dreaming has been used for deep personal and spiritual growth. In fact, some forms of Buddhism see the practice as one of the six pathways to enlightenment. Instructor Robert Waggoner will show you how lucid dreaming can be used as a tool for gaining  inner knowledge and solving problems, overcoming emotional blocks, directing healing intent to physical ailments, exploring inner creativity, and so much more!

Robert WaggonerIn 1975, Robert Waggoner taught himself a simple technique to lucid dream or become consciously aware of dreaming, while in the dream state. Since that time, he has logged more than 1,000 lucid dreams and written two books: the acclaimed Lucid Dreaming - Gateway to the Inner Self, (now in its 15th printing) and the award winning, Lucid Dreaming Plain and Simple  (with co-author Caroline McCready). Robert's books have been translated into eight languages and he has traveled the world giving lectures at universities and conferences and weekend workshops in this exciting area. A past president of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, he also co-edits the online magazine, Lucid Dreaming Experience.
